GREECE REFUGEE CRISIS - Father and Child, Island of Lesvos
They are fleeing, by the hundreds of thousands, from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, Somalia, Iran and Pakistan, a ceaseless flow of humanity driven by wars, insecurity, lack of opportunity and fear for the newly formed Islamic State. They don’t want to stay in Greece, they are aware of our problems - they continue their epic journey to Northern Europe, uncertain for what lies ahead, but still happy they managed it until here.
